A long running liberal view of things is that it’s bad that gas in America is cheaper than in Europe, where the taxes are much higher. The liberal view is that our gas prices should be much higher, because then people will be more accepting of alternative energy, windmills, solar, etc.
because then people will be more accepting of alternative energy, windmills, solar, etc.
Find an alternate energy source that is cheaper than fossil fuel and doesn’t change my lifestyle (i.e. doesn’t make me give up a car, electricity, mass transit, indoor heat etc...) and you can sign me up. Unfortunately, wishing it was so does not make it so. Right now there is simply no replacement for fossil fuel that will provide for what we consider a normal lifestyle.
